so did you drop it at the admissions office or gave it to the interviewer ? i assume dropping it off at the admissions office would be better?


Also, how did you finally get to campus ? Metra -> #6 -> cab or Metra-> 59th street ->cab ??

I gave it to the folks who were at the front office where I reported for my interview. I took the cab because my friend's apartment was near the navy pier and the cab cost me like 20 bucks.

On one hand, after hearing about everyones interview experiences I am glad that my interview is this weekend so that I have more time to prepare. On the other hand, I kind of wish that it was last weekend because now I probably feel more nervous knowing what awaits me.

Even I did that. I had sent in an email to the adcom asking them of this and they said it would be OK to submit it while on campus even though it was a Saturday.
You might want to double check ahead of time, especially if your interview is on a Saturday.

There was at least one person in the adcom office when I was at the Harper center and I handed it off to her. Joanne (the person in charge of financial aid advised me to do so)

Good Luck!

Just curious to know if the GSB interview is a make-or-break deal or just another data point...

I would tend to agree with NC in that it could be a weeding out process. However, I also overheard a student mentioning some crazy facts like only 100 admits going out in round one etc.
Dunno how true that is but if it is...I would assume there should be many more invites/admits to go.

Any thoughts???????

Rhyme....could that be true?

LOL who said 100 people were admitted in round 1? I can't do a search in the community directory for "incoming students", but anyone who was admitted in round 1 can. Ask one of them to. Its not exact (transfers and other things show up too), but it gives you a rough idea.

I assure you that far more than 100 were admitted. Even with 80% yield, which is probably high, that would only be 80 people attending. Considering that traditionally R1 applications are usually the strongest, I'd expect to see at least 1/3 of admits in R1, if not more (considering R3 is usually small). Assuming this year is like last year, I believe there were about 300 or so people in the community directory in R1 last year.

Also, Interview is not make or break.

looking at the community directory it looks like 300+ admits in R1

I was shocked too.. I don't remember the name (Nupur do you ?, the guy we met at the cafeteria...?)
He said something like they'd probably be looking for 300 more given that "100" number for R1.

Dabots...thanks for looking it up. Helps clarify things a lot...

Also, it is comforting to know that the interviews are not make or break. In fact I looked up the chat transcripts from the GSb site and found this....

Rose: The slides are very helpful as we finalize decisions, but play a very small role in the first point evaluation - at the point of the invitation to interview.
If the adcom goes by what Rose says...the slides will play an important part.

In any case, the long wait has now begun... 37 odds days to go. Is there any chance that they might start sending decisions ahead of March 26th?

I can assure that it was more than 100, from an e-mail I received from Rose, they admitted around 7 Brazilians including me, it wasn't an e-mail telling that, it was a scholarship institution for Brazilian and I could see 7 addresses.

Considering that they admit around 14 every year - which is around the 3% band GSB has for us, hehehe - I'd say that they already admitted around 250 students.

I may be wrong, but only 100 with 7 Brazilians, would be too many Brazilians for diversity... just that...

Hahaha I know I can assure but I may be wrong :shock:

Its not published. The last known figure I think was 67%, from a few years ago on BW. I would imagine that its probably a bit higher with the rank and all. Whatever it is, its likely somewhere in the 65 to 75 range, on par with Wharton and Kellogg and other similarly ranked schools.

Just wanted to let people know that I have an interview!! Needless to say I'm delighted. I have to admit I was starting to lose hope.

I would like to thank all the contributors to this forum, you've all helped me immensely. I certainly wouldn't have made it without you. I'll obviously post a transcript of my interview as soon as I get through it.

Thanks again to everybody.

For those who went through this in Rd1, did anyone receive an interview invite within the last two days? That would leave the rest of us with some hope for Tues and Wed.

Thanks,
RG

Neo, there are days that I'm MIT, there are days I'm GSB. I just don't like looking to the weather report here and see a -17 degrees Celsius of maximum (MAN THAT'S COLD). Today it was a GSB day, I talked to many GSB alumni and they encouraged me even to stop working right now :lol: 8-) :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :P

Anyway, I'm going to US, I have a close buddy who's living in Milwaukee, and I will take my decision, I know I can't do wrong with neither of them but right now I think I'm heading to the C city. But still MIT sounds like a non stopping bell in my head...

BLASPHEMY! You should be lucky for me to forgive you for such you for such insolence! How dare you not bow down to our shared one true savior, Dean Stacey Kole? Nay, for you have strayed my little one, you have strayed against the light of salvation and truth and plunged into the darkness of ignorance and futility. My people and I can show you the true way, the way of the prophet Eugene Fama, and bring light where there was once darkness. Truth where there was once lies. Happiness where there was one Sadness.

Join us oh weak one, for he who joins the masters of the universe, shall forever prevent Skeletor from reaching the Almighty +9 Mana Sword Of Damnation. It is not too late for you, nay - for the power of the kingdom and the bonus points in the hidden chest in Alzeron provide us with the strength to save thee.

Repent now for your sins, cleanse your body of these impure and demonic thoughts and join the powers that be.
